Daisy Rosenblum is a doctoral student in linguistics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her current work focuses on the multi-modal documentation and description of Kʷak̓ʷala, a Wakashan language spoken in British Columbia, with an emphasis on methods that contribute to and participate in community-based language revitalization. Her research interests include the grammar of space, argument structure, alignment, deixis, voice and valence, as well as mechanisms of contact, diffusion and change in the Pacific Northwest and Mesoamerican linguistic areas. She is collaborating with members of the Kʷakʷəkəw̓akʷ Nation in British Columbia to create an annotated corpus of spontaneous speech in two dialects, to be archived within the community and at the Endangered Language Archive at SOAS.
